The Brewster sisters are the nicest ladies in Brooklyn, despite their strange family history and their slightly off-center live-in cousin who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt. However, these two sweet spinsters hide a murderous secret their young nephew Mortimer Brewster is about to mistakenly uncover. What ensues is a non-stop comedic roller coaster ride for Mortimer, his new fiancé, and the rest of the Brewster family. Arsenic and Old Lace, written by Joseph Kesselring, was originally performed in 1941 and made into a hit movie starring Cary Grant in 1944. Over the years, it has been widely held as a classic piece of American dramatic literature, never losing its comedic charm.

Original Script by Joseph Kesselring
